A charity supporting children and young people who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, and their families.
They follow the national Children's Hospice criteria. Noah's Ark can help families living in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, Islington and Hertsmere. We work with children under 19 years old who are affected by a life-limiting or life-threatening condition.
Life-limited means that a child or young person is not expected to live far beyond 19. This does not include children whose lives are affected by disability, but not shortened by it.
Life-threatened includes children/young people with organ failure, cancer or leukaemia for whom curative treatment may be successful. It also includes children and young people whose life threatening condition might be temporary.

This can include Family Link Service; Family Days; Children's Groups; Parents' Groups; Sibling Groups; Home Support Volunteers; Specialist carers; Bereavement Support; Drama and Movement Therapy; Music Therapy; Specialist Play.
